Yesterday, Universal Studios, the Orlando theme park, announced that beginning January 1, 2014, when Obamacare takes full effect, it will no longer provide health insurance to its part-time employees.
As you know, beginning January 1, all health insurance policies offered by employers must contain a plethora of “whistles and bells” as mandated by our government. That costs money…much more than Universal is currently spending.
Here is an interesting off-shoot of this decision.
Some employees reportedly are blaming the company, claiming Universal could offer better coverage that complies with the law if it wanted.
This should make the nightly news.
I can hear Chris Matthews of MSNBC’s “Hardball” shouting, “yet another evil corporation throws loyal employees to the wind for the sake of profits”.
But, it won’t make the nightly news, much less a comment from Matthews.
Universal Studios is owned by NBC.
